Safety Clip for Polar Cutter turnbuckle nut (36mm) 205809
- Our Part Number: PA1257
This safety catch clip (equivalent to Polar 205809) is used on the turnbuckle nut or adjusting nut on the Polar pull arm assembly (sometimes called a draw arm). It fits the older Polar models (80 thru 92) that use a 36 mm turnbuckle nut. These measure 36 mm across the hex on the turnbuckle nuts.
These safety clips are not idiot proof, but they help to prevent the operator from unscrewing the turnbuckle nut too far when adjusting the blade height during a blade change. If the safety clip is not in place during a blade change then it is impossible to tell how far out the pull arm threads have been unscrewed. This can result in destroying the threads on the upper arm and on the lower threaded arm of the pull arm assembly.
See our part number PA1017 for a safety catch clip that fit the 46 mm pull arm turnbuckle nut.
